The Dior show took place in a simple cylindrical white pavilion, located among foliage in the gardens of Musée Rodin.

As part of the set designed by creative director Raf Simons, white orchids with pink centres covered the walls inside and light shone from two concentric rings of baton-shaped strips in the floor.

Black chairs for guests, arranged in curved rows in front of the walls, contrasted with the otherwise all-white interior.

The collection largely echoed the pale, floral set design and featured light-coloured garments mixed with dark items.

Jump suits and utility coats were made feminine with floral details and belts that bunched material at the waist.

Dark coats stopped just before the ankle to reveal flashes of bright wide-legged trousers.

    Who designed this pavilion? Is it a permanent structure?

    Hi Rebecca,

    The pavilion was designed in-house by Dior and no it’s not permanent.

    Hope this helps!

    How much did it cost to design the orchid wall? It’s breathtaking!
